Michael Fassbender has emerged as director Jose Padilha’s apparent top choice to play the new version of “RoboCop” for MGM.
He’s now meeting with the studio to talk plans with filming in February or March – “We’re just delivering the project, but also we depend on the schedule of the actors. It’s tough. I can’t talk yet, it’s too early to speak, but there are some actors I like. I really like Fassbender, I’ll talk to him. There’s a possibility, and there’s a lot of other great actors that would play RoboCop. But that’s the idea, to film around January, February, March.”
The likes of Chris Pine, Keanu Reeves, Tom Cruise, and Johnny Depp have all been mentioned as possible candidates.
